ZIONSVILLE FARMERS’ MARKET 2023 SEASON HIGHLIGHTS
Be sure to mark your calendars and join us for the 26th annual Zionsville Farmers’ Market on Saturday, May 20 from 8:00 to 11:30 a.m.! ZFM’s location on Zionsville’s historic Main Street between Pine and Hawthorne continues to be a success for its vendors and a wildly popular space for families, friends and neighbors to gather on Saturday mornings.
This season will boast a total of 42 ZFM local produce and food vendors as well as an array of fun and exciting events and activities for all ages!
This Season’s Special Events
The ZFM President Danielle Pezet shared some of the exciting events and activities that the volunteer board has organized for the upcoming market season.
“We will host monthly special events — which will include a giveaway and kids’ craft — and a variety of weekly activities at our dedicated event booth space,” Pezet stated. “We are proud to announce we were the recipient of a Boone County Waste Grant! This grant will allow us, in partnership with the Town of Zionsville, to install a water fountain and bottle filling station on Main Street. In celebration of this new water fountain, we plan to give away ZFM-branded water bottles on Green Day!”
Pezet added, “Check out our market booth for new Zionsville Farmers’ Market swag! Including new ‘punny’ shirts, like the community favorite, ‘GIVE PEAS A CHANCE’ and new this year ‘EVERYDAY I’M BRUSSELIN’.’ We will also be offering ZFM-branded reusable tote bags, bags and water bottles. We will continue our commitment to being environmentally friendly with our ‘Bring your Bag to Market’ giveaway … come by the market booth each weekend to get your raffle ticket to win a beautiful fresh flower bouquet for bringing your reusable bag.”
As per market tradition, ZFM Mascot “Cornelius,” a lovable little corn stuffy, will be hidden somewhere in the market each weekend for kiddos to seek and find. Sticker prizes for locating Cornelius will be given out at the market booth.
